Silk Screen Printing, Plastisol Printing Or Rubberized Printing?
If I Want To Print Shirts That Look A Lot Like Bleeding Star, Kid Robot, Tokidoki And Other Clothing Which Kind Of Printing Should I Do? Silk Screen Printing, Plastisol Printing Or Rubberized Printing

Silk screen printing is probably what you want to get into. Plastisol is the name of an ink manufacturer. And in the textile industry rubberized printing is mostly used for "honey comb" or mesh material where detail is nonexistent.

Bleeding star type printing would not be for the at home type printer unless you were a professional. It has that wow factor that takes a lot of art and printing skills to pull off a functional shirt.

Good luck

Silk Screen Printing?
Hi! I'M New To Silk Screen Printing. My Objective Is To To Print On The Temples Of Sunglasses. The Image Is Text And A Flag And Involves Red And White. Will 110 Mesh Work For This Or Will It Not Be Detailed Enough (The Image Is Pretty Small Given The Small Space On Which To Print And I'D Like It To Look Pretty Crisp.) And What Ink/Paint Do You Recommend? Id Like It To Look Like Its Printed On The Plastic- Not Raised Or Glossy Or Anything- And To Make Sure The Paint/Ink Won'T Come Off. Also, The Glasses Are A Dark Navyy And The Colors Are Red And White. Should I Do Anything To Make Sure The Paint/Ink Shows Up Well? And, Last Thing I Promise :), I Don'T Have An Exposure Unit So How Long Is A Good Amount Of Time To Leave The Screen Out In The Sun To Burn The Stencil? Your Help Is So Appreciated! Thank You!! -Mary

What you want to do is performing a technical near miracle. You having no experience will make it the full miracle.

Problem one: printing on a non flat surface. The solution they use in factories is to silkscreen print on a rubber surface en press that on the curved shape. Doing that by hand may work but is a skill that is hard to master.
Problem two: No matter how good you are, this will mess up a lot of sunglasses.

A more economic and less bothersome way would be to have it printed on transparent vynil and stick those to the glasses.

I Like To Wear Girls Clothes?
So Im 14. When Nobodys Home, I Sometimes Go Into My Parents Room And Look Through My Moms Clothes. I Take Anything Interesting And Try It On. These Things Could Be Bras, Panties, Dresses, Nighties, Skirts, Etc. I Just Cant Wear Her Heels Cause My Feet Are Too Big. My Questions Are...Should I Stop? Should I Tell People? And If I Shouldnt Stop, What Else Can I Wear? Thank You

Well the question for me is, do you like the fit of the clothes or do you just like wearing womens clothing? And also do you have a feeling for boys? If you know for sure that you do not like boys, the simple solution is that you just love wearing womens clothes nothing more nothing less. If you feel as if you have this push to tell your mom, but first consider her normal personality, how do you think she would take it? Happy, Mad, or just understanding. If you have a thing for boys I suggest you speak with a guidance counselor at your school because everything you say to them has to be hold confidential. And when you get what you need to get off your chest you would feel a lot better. But also consider telling your mom too, because she may surprise you and be more understanding than you think.

I tried my best to help you out, unlike some other people on here. Don't let them get you down if you like woman's clothes go ahead and strut em'. (:

p.s I wearing woman's clothing is fun to you, and it makes you happy don't stop, but you should ask your mom for permission to be wearing her clothes, and suggest that you can buy your own. (:


To Start A T-Shirt Buiness, Should I Buy Equipment And Print My Own T-Shirts Or Use An Online Company?
If I Buy My Own Equipment For T-Shirt Printing - Should I Screen Print Or Get A Hot Press For Transfers.

What kind of t-shirt business are you looking to do? Local screen printing for towns and small businesses, creative designs for mass markets, starting your own brand, etc?

I think you should test out the market in order to see if people actually like your designs before you make a large investment in equipment. There are two routes you can take. You can start using existing screen printers to print out your designs, or you can test out your designs on websites like cafepress or zazzle. These websites handle all expenses & fullfillment and then send you a check for the remaining profit. Your only responsibilty is maintaining your website. After a few months of sales, reevaluate if opening your own operation would be more profitable and cost effective than these two options. If you find you have a large market or a high demand, I would use your profits to invest in your own equipment.

My friend and I took this same route. We opened a store at cafepress and also outsourced some print jobs to local printers for larger orders. We've managed to run a nice side business without investing too much of our own money into it.

Good luck!

1) You can import clothes from anywhere you like , you may need to pay an import customs tax , and you can repackage them and sell them but you must be honest and not infringe any copyright.
You can not not state made in the uk , if they they originated from china.
2) Yes you can start through e bay
3) You can learn how to set up a website from many college's or just pay someone to do it for you.
4) yes - why not make millions ? it is possible how ever not as easy as you may think !
5) You can pay a company in china to make clothes with your original " Label " on them , your clothes will be distinctive and as such will not infringe any copyright.
Basically you just need some money , check out the cost of importing a van full of goods from china , customs excise duty , and be realistic about how easy you can sell your clothes at a profit !
